Hallowe'en Compost Heap!

Hallowe'en Compost Heap!
Muhahahhahaaaaa! It's Hallowe'en and what better than a fun themed meal?

We're having a Compost Heap! No, really ...

We need to build out compost heap: old food, soil, dead organic matter, fungi and worms.


Soil - Minced beef, cubed potato, onion garlic and black pepper

Fungi - Oyster mushrooms

Dead, organic matter - calendula petals, an edible flower

Worms - Hot Dog sausages!

Hot Dogs? I know ... THE HORROR!!! It is Hallowe'en ...


In a skillet, brown off the minced meat, add in puréed onion and garlic. Black pepper, top up with water and let it energetically simmer for maybe an hour.

Fungi, Organic Matter & Worms

Meanwhile, cut a few oyster mushrooms in half, remove the petals from a calendula flower and warm the Hot Dogs through.

Calendula is an edible flower with a slightly bitter and very floral taste.

Once the Hot Dogs are just warm, remove from the heat and quarter lengthways.

When you are ready to eat, fold the mushrooms through the mince beef and serve ...


Serve the minced meat out into large bowls, threading the worms through and scatter the petals over.
